Jailbreak Rainbows – Episode 502

Originally published: October 30th, 2019 This was the first Fish’n Canada episode of the 2019 fishing season and it truly was a highly anticipated one! It took place at the gorgeous Pleasant Cove Resort in Point au Baril Ontario, on Georgian Bay. I’ve been to Pleasant Cove before and this place always gets me excited. Another first […]

Reaching Deep for Walleye – Episode 513

For this late fall Fish’n Canada episode, Steve Niedzwiecki and I head to my old stomping grounds, Ontario’s Bay of Quinte. As far as cold, open water is concerned, Quinte is one of the worlds best for big Walleye. This body of water is one of my absolute favourite Walleye waters in the entire country. […]

Ritchies Back Lake Specks – Episode 512

This Fish’n Canada episode is somewhat of a nostalgic one for me. Nostalgic in the sense of the quarry I’m after, the Brook Trout, or as they’re sometimes called, Speckled Trout. These gorgeous little creatures have always been a high priority in the Bowman family fishing adventures. To this day, my dad still tells stories […]

Hotspot – Ritchie Falls Brook Trout

Ritchie Falls Brook Trout – N 46° 44.509’ W 82° 16.042’ Today’s Hotspot, is on one of the “many” fantastic Brook Trout lakes that Ritchie Falls Resort has access to. The waypoint on your screen will get you there. A small 1/3 ounce copper and red spoon was the ticket for this trip. I love […]

Location: Roothouse Lake, Ontario GPS: N46º 37.573′ W083º 08.323′ Species: Brook Trout This Hotspot is on Roothouse Lake in the Algoma Region of Ontario. It’s a subtle point jutting from shore and dropping into deep water. The best ways of fishing a structure like this are slow trolling, drifting, anchoring, or easing your way with […]

Location: Long Mountain Lake, British Columbia GPS: N59º 18.091′ W126º 38.585′ Species: Lake Trout This Fish’n Canada Hotspot is directly off a point on British Columbia’s Long Mountain Lake which leads towards a saddle and an underwater hump.

Lake Superior, Ontario

June’s Hotspot is a Speckled Trout, Lake Trout, Steelhead and Salmon waypoint… we know that because we just caught all of them there! Try casting spinners and small spoons like Cleos & Minnow baits up to 5″. Don’t hesitate to cast shallow and work out to the first break down to 12 feet.
